Vice President Inonge Wina has challenged the opposition political parties in the country alleging that there is corruption under the leadership of President Lungu and his government to bring forward evidence for possible prosecution.
The Vice President challenged the opposition political party leaders at a public rally held at Kasomabangweulu Primary School in Bangweulu Constituency in Samfya District.
Ms. Wina said there has been a lot of negative media reports on corruption in government which had no basis due to lack of evidence.
She said if anyone has evidence, they should report the matter to the police and the Anti Corruption Commission (ACC) for possible prosecution.
Ms Wina said such negative reports only scare away investors who should partner with government to develop the country.
She called for a stop to the practice because it is detrimental to the developmental agenda of Zambia.
The Vice President warned that the singers of alleged high levels of corruption in government should first check themselves because it might be themselves who were corrupt and thought everybody was like them.
Ms. Wina said there is no corruption in the way the PF is running government and President Lungu is a clean person who will not tolerate corruption in his government.
She appealed to opposition political leaders to tell the people the truth in their campaign messages because misinformation is a recipe for underdevelopment for a country like Zambia.
The Vice President reminded the people that government will take development to every part of the country because resources for development were public funds and should be used to develop the country.
And speaking earlier, Patriotic Front Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri said President Lungu was not tribal because there is only one Cabinet Minister from Eastern Province in his Cabinet, John Phiri.
She said other ministers are from other provinces among which four are from Luapula namely; Emerine Kabanshi at Community Development, Davies Mwila at Home Affairs, Harry Kalaba at Foreign Affairs and Yamfwa Mukanga at Works and Supply.
